ROXAS CITY—Roxas Memorial Provincial Hospital (RMPH) chief Florencio Luching recently denied making questionable transactions for the hospital’s equipment in this city.

In an Oct. 14 press conference, Dr. Luching said that the transactions made for the purchase of a pharmaceutical refrigerator, oxygen regulators and blood chemistry analyzers were proper and necessary.

Luching made the pronouncement in response to allegations made by a certain Juana Dela Cruz who sent a letter to the local media recently. In her letter, Dela Cruz questioned the hospital’s purchase of a clinical refrigerator worth one million pesos, claiming that it only costs only approximately P300,000.

Further, she questioned the hospital’s procurement of 100 pieces of oxygen gauges for P500,000 and Luching’s request for a P2.8 millionpeso-realignment for hospital equipment for blood chemistry.

Purchase of said pharmaceutical refrigerator underwent a legitimate process, according to Edmund Baldonado, speaking for the bids and awards committee secretariat.

Of the three suppliers, JOSMEF Enterprises was the only one who made the bid, Baldonado said. The pharmaceutical refrigerator brought from JOSMEF Enterprises cost P998,698.50.

“It is okay if there is only one bidder,” Baldonado said, citing Section 36 of the Republic Act No. 9184 or the Government Procurement Reform Act.


Luching said that the purchase of the pharmaceutical refrigerator is necessary since it is required by PhilHealth and the Department of Health.


Luching said that the pharmaceutical refrigerator placed inside RMPH pharmacy is the one that does not freeze—unlike a domestic refrigerator whose temperature fluctuates—which preserves vaccines and medicines better.

He said that purchasing more oxygen regulators is necessary because some of the existing ones do not give off enough oxygen.

According to Luching, there are some 50 to 70 oxygen regulators in RMPH required to cater to some 200 patients daily.“

Prayoridad ang pagginhawa sang tawo (Respiration of the patients is the priority)” he said.

The price for the oxygen regulators purchased was accurate, Luching said.

Luching added that one of RMPH’s priorities is the realignment of P 2.8 million for an automated blood chemistry analyzer; automated water filter and feeder; and a coagulation machine which checks if there is blood clot.
